Shell has returned to the FIA World Endurance Championship (FIA WEC) as Official Fuel Partner to the Automobile Club de l’Ouest (ACO).

24 hours of Le Mans and Shell: A motoring victory
The crowning event of the season is the legendary Le Mans 24 Hours, one of the most important annual sporting occasions in the world. The rest of the FIA World Endurance Championship (WEC) season is no less momentous: a series of six hour races stretching from Europe to the Middle East, Asia and the USA.
Shell V-Power gasoline and diesel racing evolved for the 2014 season to help the competing manufacturers – Audi, Porsche and Toyota – achieve a 30% reduction in consumption. The joint efforts made to achieve this goal and continue development going forward, means that all competitors benefit from Shell V-Power racing fuels, which provide a blend of speed and sustainability that has never been more spectacular.
- Night and day racing – the Le Mans 24 Hours is the most celebrated round-the-clock event in motorsport
- Shell scientists and competing teams work together to create sporting spectacle with real-world benefits for the next generation of road-going technology
- Diversity is the name of the game as both gasoline and diesel technology is showcased in a field of both thoroughbred sports prototypes and production-based GT cars
